Whereas: For the welfare of the tobacco 
industry in Baltimore City and for the welfare of 
the City itself, the tax imposed on certain tobacco 
products should be repealed immediately for the 
following reasons: 

(1) Retail dealers in Baltimore City who handle 
tobacco products are placed at a serious competitive 
disadvantage with retailers in the counties and 
states surrounding Baltimore City, which have no 
tax on these products. In June, 1967, Baltimore 
County repealed its tobacco license which had been 
in effect for only nine (9) months after the Balti- 
more County tobacco tax had previously been 
repealed in 1966. Similar tobacco taxes have been 
repealed in Virginia in 1966 and in New York in 
1965; Delaware repealed its tobacco tax after one 
year's experience. There are no similar taxes in 
North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West 
Virginia or the District of Columbia and the 
existence of the tax in Baltimore City only en- 
courages bootlegging to avoid the tax. 



ORDINANCES 127 

(2) Since the State of Maryland has taken over 
the collection of the Cigarette Tax, which is state- 
wide, the burden of enforcing and policing the 
tobacco tax in the City has become increasingly 
difficult and extremely expensive. This tax has 
never been a major source of revenue for the City 
and obviously never will be, as it is primarily a 
nuisance tax. The sale of these tobacco products 
has continually declined and the revenues from this 
source have recently dropped as much as thirty per- 
cent (30%). The gross revenues from the tax have 
decreased from a high of $233,693 in 1957 to 
$144,134 in 1968, and will, in all probability, shrink 
even further by reason of the fact that Baltimore 
City alone will carry the burden of the tax in a 
vast area free of such tax. 

(3) The Director of Finance has consistently 
recommended that the tobacco tax "is a bad" tax 
and has stated that in the preparation of the 1969 
budget he plans to recommend the elimination of 
the tax as a source of revenue. 

(4) The mechanics of applying the tax to cigars 
affects the freshness of the product in that the 
cellophane wrapper must be broken to affix the tax 
stamp and each box of cigars must be repriced to 
shov. T the tax; and since the tax is based on the 
retail selling price, no set tax can be levied, as the 
retail price varies. All of this results in unnecessary 
added expenses to the wholesaler, and adversely 
affects the industry. 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City 
Council of Baltimore, That Sections 54, 55, 56, 57, 
58, 59 and 60 of Article 28 of the Baltimore City 
Code (1966 Edition), title "Taxes," subtitle 
"Cigarettes," be and they are hereby repealed. 

Sec. 2. And be it further ordained, That nothing 
in this Ordinance shall be construed to affect the 
collection of any taxes lawfully imposed prior to 
the effective date of this Ordinance. All such taxes 
lawfully imposed prior to the effective date of this 
Ordinance shall be due, collectible, and collected in

and minimize the effect of conditions conducive to 
decay and deterioration of the structure, and to 
prevent excessive heat in attics. All such exterior

propriately screened. 



ORDINANCES 263

the exercise of those functions and powers of the 
City of Baltimore which are vested in the Depart-
